Get ready sneaker fans, this one is for you! The Hype City streetwear and sneaker convention is coming to Vancouver next month. This annual event will feature all the must-haves and limited edition goodies your closet needs. As always, we are here with all the information you need.
The highly anticipated sneaker and streetwear convention is back. Hosted by Hype City, this is one of Canada’s largest sneaker and streetwear conventions. It is back for its fifth year and you can bet it will be bigger and better than ever.
During this event, attendees will have access to some seriously exclusive items. All your favourites will be there including Yeezys, Off White, Jordans, Nikes, and that's just to name a few. Altogether the event will have over 70 vendors selling their goods. These vendors will be coming from all over the place including Metro Vancouver, Alberta, Seattle, and even Eastern Canada.
Make sure to keep your eye out for some good deals. According to Xavier, one of the lead coordinators for HypeCity, there will be some shoes and clothing on for reduced prices. Make sure you know your stuff before you go!
Along with sale items, there will be sought after high-end options. According to Xavier, it isn’t uncommon to see exclusive items sell for thousands of dollars.
“We’ve had Nike Air Yeezys come through, which begin at 4000.00 Canadian depending on the colorway. We’ve also had the Nike Air Mag, the self-lacing shoe from Back To The Future, which currently sells for over 18,000 in the Canadian market,” said Xavier.
This event is always a huge hit. The last HypeCity event took place in November 2018 and brought in over 1,600 people! This year, they are expecting to bring in more.
Along with the large crowds and shopping selections, there will be a DJ with a set stage. There will also be a Super Smash Bros Ultimate tournament set to run all day. Think you have what it takes?
If you have exclusive items to sell but don’t have a table, no problem. Bring them along with you. There will be a trading circle set up for anyone who wishes to get rid of some of their unwanted streetwear and shoes.
This sneaker-head event is set to take place at the Vancouver Convention Centre on June 1, 2019. Doors will open at 11 AM for VIP guests, with general entrance starting at 12 PM. The entire event will run until 6 PM which should give you plenty of time to peruse the large selection of goodies.
Tickets for the VIP admission can be purchased for $30, with general admission going for $25. All tickets can be purchased online through the Hype City website.
